Good call Pauly however I see a glaring problem. What about the New 3rd Bn?
Appreciate that you have covered Vikings, Poachers and Pompadours however is the latter Old 3rd Bn or New 3rd Bn or both?

Right now as I understand it the New 3rd Bn haven't yet worked out if they are Pompadours, Steelbacks or Leanbacks but if its a true Anglian site you might want to give it some thought :)

Of course you could just keep it a purely Regular Bn thing its your site :)

Cheers

P.S There was also a 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th Bn as well and as far as I am aware most of those who served in these are still alive - well most of them :)

There's no Register on the home page, just go to your respective battalion forum and register there, hope that helps, Paul

Will serve both current 3rd bn T.A. and regular army, I personally think they should keep the same nickname, there could possibly be a T.A. side to it, just depends if there is a requirement for it.

Hi Paul,

Might be worth contacting the poachers shortly. They are coming back from Iraq now onwards. Should have some interesting pics and stories from the tour? Just an idea.

I will look out for there return matey, do you know where 2 Royal Anglian base themselves in the U.K?

The Vikings are still in Pirbright at the moment and are deploying to Afghanistan early next year. They are then moving to Bulford, taking over from 2nd Btn, RGJ in 2009. Thank God the RGJ are leaving soon, bunch of arsonists!
